Popped in here on at least 3 occasions during a Jun ’12 visit to Denver. Solid selection of bottles (100 or so) and taps (30) largely from local CO craft brewers and some from further afield. Servers were very friendly/knowledgeable and gave me a sample or two without having to ask. Kicked their keg of Pliny on the Saturday night and the bartender gave me 2/3rds of a pint gratis - cheers! Only had snacks (hot and cold) from the food menu - these were good, but also basing my food review on what I could see others eating - it looked great especially the burger. It wasn’t too busy on any of my visits so rated a bit lower on ambience as no real buzz inside.

Stopped in last week on our first day in Denver. The inside is fairly nice for a beer bar. Nice row of taps and a bottle fridge. Service was pretty good. Selection was nice with on-tap offerings, and the bottles in the cooler looked good. The food was nice. My steak and frites wasn’t fantastic, but adequate. The pretzel bite and fried pickle appetizers were both great, especially with the serrano mustard. Price was pretty good. A very enjoyable experience, and I’ll certainly come back the next time I’m in Denver.

Went in on a random Tuesday afternoon for a snack and a few beers. Long and narrow place that seemed to have more seating in the back. It was quiet in the bar area and the service was pretty attentive, although the waitress seemed to know very little about the beer, as the bartender walked over to confirm our order. Still, they were the only place around town that had the Crooked Stave Petit Sour on draft and there were a couple other beers that were only here and nowhere else I saw. I would definitely go back here as the food was very good and paired well with the beer. Happy hour made the beer prices better (so I am remembering) and it was a good experience overall.

Nice beer selection. Nice location downtown. I was disappointed with the lack of vegetarian/vegan friendly options on the menu. Sat a the bar both ties and the bartenders were solid.

Very cool place just south of the free mall ride main depot. Tight entrance when it is busy, but that adds to the excitement of getting in. Had the C’ Stave yellow, nuff said. Cool staff and environment. Did not eat. Will go there again.

Place has a vibe that reminds me of a sports bar, but yet it feels very cozy inside. The food is centered around craft beer, which is awesome and btw it is delicious. There are about 20 taps, mostly regional, but the bottle list is extensive. One of the only places you can find Funkwerks on tap in Denver. You won’t find a huge number of rare bottles on the list, but sometimes you’ll be suprised. Great place, that I frequent often.

The food was inventive and thoroughly enjoyable. The beer selection wasn’t overwhelming, but I found some winners on the list. Be advised that a supplemental list contains about a dozen beers that aren’t on the regular menu.

A little cramped, but it still has a nice modern vibe without beeing too beer-snobby like Falling Rock. Didn’t try the food, but the beer selection is incredible. It’s mostly CO local stuff--and good stuff at that--but the non CO stuff is rare-find after rare-find. I had a Liefman Oud Brute and a He’Brew 15:15. Come on. The staff knows/loves beer, and seems like a really neat place to hang out. 4-5 bucks a pint aint too bad.

A crowded stop during GABF (at 1am). Interesting, slightly modern and slightly pretentious vibe (maybe just a change from Falling Rock). Lots of brewers having dinner. Dining area was a bit compact (as was the place in general). Tried the food which was mixed (as far as quality). Mostly local beers and some very good ones at that. Prices were on the more expensive side. I would love to try the place when it was less crowded.
